Hey all, It's been a while since I've been on dis here and I know ya'll have missed me!! I've been busy getting a different boat, and havent been able to go fishing for about a month now! "THAT'S WAY TOOOOO LONG!!"
Any hoo, I think I'm gonna take my new, used boat out on da water this Sunday, whats the latest report on the river? How are the Kitties biting & Are Frogs still the bait of choice?

I also wanted to know if anyone knows anything about Sturgeon on the Rainy?

Is there a good time in the fall to fish for Sturgeon? If so, When? Thanks

GOOD LUCK FISHING...............

Fishing has been very good still on spots around Drayton and 175, we got some very nice Cats over the long weekend. Frogs have been the ticket for me for 2 weeks or so, though Saturday we got some dandies on the cutbatis too.

Late September on thru October is a good timeframe for Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy, when this Catfish bite slows I'll be there!

Hey everyone, I'm new to the area and need to fill my addiction of fishing while in college. I'm a long time metro ************ fisherman, and Ottertail walleye fisherman, so i would offer trades in information for some info on the red river. I'm a Catch and release guy so you don't have to worry about a meat hound.

Questions: I've never fished for catfish before, so I'm wondering what a typical setup is for them. I brought my heavy bass rod with power pro, and my 6'6 lindy riggin rod with mono up with me. Will either do?

It sound like walleyes will start bitin anyday now, but are there any other species worth going after? Like Smallmouth? From my little experience fishing the rivers, I know that dams, inlets, wingdams, and turns are good places to start, but is it different for the catfish?

Any info would be appriciated smile.gif

Thank You, Nick

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!

      As many of the other dog owners told me the third hunting season is when it comes together for lots of dogs. Finn did much better today and he got to watch a veteran dog again. I am excited to keep getting finn out hunting

      We got two ducks. We should had more but it was fun shooting. I need to keep my face on my stock. I had pass on many birds as another group moved in on top of us. I had 5 woodies locked up and I drew a bead and I saw the other guys faces. No shot as i would killed them or wounded them. They knew we there but did not seem to care.

      Great job guys!! I got 8 shots off the first one was good then I missed 7 in a row. Gordie got one and well river rat got zero. It was a hoot to hunt with them.

      I have a 2018 ice castle with the GS trailer frame. Are you supposed to drill holes to let water out of the tubes or do the new GS trailers have holes in them already? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      We we're done by 7 this morning.  Were set up over field goose decoys now.
